Gender differences in verbal and spatial working memory
Midwestern Psychological Association
We investigated gender differences in simple memory, processing, and interference in spatial and verbal working memory. The only gender difference was better simple spatial memory in men. Spatial and verbal measures were significantly intercorrelated among men, but for women, simple verbal memory was unrelated to other measures.
